As I type these words, people in Paris are traumatized by the recent surprise attacks on them, and worried about family, friends, and their future well-being.

While the world is still reeling from the effects of war, many are now bracing for something that could be worse.

As I overhear all of this, I hear an underlying victim mentality.

We’re victims of storms.

We’re victims of attacks.

We’re victims of a poorly run government.

We’re victims of gas prices, gas shortages, inflation, recession, taxes, wars, and more.

I’m going to say something unusual.

It may upset some people.

I’m hoping it will inspire you.

Here goes:

You have more power than you think.

While you may not want to stand in the path of war, you don’t have to cower under the bed, either.

As odd as it may sound, I believe that if enough of us think positive, we can create a counter storm of sorts.

We can protect ourselves and our loved ones with our thoughts.

I’ve described and proved this with the research in the back of my book, The Attractor Factor.

More than nineteen studies *proved* that when a large group of people hold positive intentions, those intentions radiate out and become reality.

I asked my readers to help stop Hurricane Rita almost ten years ago.

Rita stopped.

I asked my readers to help stop the Texas wildfires several years ago.

The fires stopped.

I asked my readers to help my dying mother several years ago.

My mother is still with us.

Together, we can do something about Paris, too.

I’m not saying ignore current reality.

I’m asking you to create a better reality.

I’m saying don’t get caught up in fear.

I’m asking you to come from faith.

Look. If you think an attack will get you or a loved one, then it’s already gotten you.

You’re living in fear.

Your life is dark, gloomy and in a cage.

The media is flawless at whipping us into fear.

So I suggest ignoring the mainstream media.

It’s not information, it’s propaganda.

That’s why it’s called “programming.”

It gets large groups of people to think negative, which of course then becomes reality.

Why can’t we do the opposite?

Why can’t we get large groups of people to think positive?

Yes, be sure to travel safely and wisely.

Yes, be sure you take care of yourself and your family.

Yes, contribute to any causes you believe in that help people who need it right now.

But also check the storehouse in your mind.

Are you living in fear, or living in trust?

Are you coming from fear, or faith?

Are you focused on the negative, or are you doing something to create a positive?

We are always at choice.

My plea is that the readers of this blog — you — will stop, breathe, and focus on love; pray, or in some positive way send out an energy that will help dissolve the fear in and around us.

I’m asking you to do this today.

As I was writing this, I was reminded of the famous Paradoxical Commandments written by Dr. Kent M. Keith.

They go like this –

“People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

“If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

“If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

“The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

“Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

“The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

“People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

“What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

“People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

“Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”

I know you may feel that thinking positive may be a waste of time.

Do it anyway.

I know you may feel that your efforts are insignificant.

Do it anyway.

I know you may wonder if group meditation will really work.

Do it anyway.

I know you may doubt if prayer will help.

Do it anyway.

Let’s create the positive future we want right now.

Let’s focus on spirit.

Let’s focus on love.

What I’m asking you to do is be happy, right now.


Send that loving energy out, in the direction of Paris.

Intend for all to be well, for, in reality, from a spiritual view of life, all is well.

We can make a difference.

It begins with you.

And me.

Will you join me?

Ao Akua,

    Thank You, Joe for sharing this. The world DOES need love right now. And I send LOVE to everyone involved in all parts of the world. I send it also to the people responsible. I hope that they will see the light. It’s never too late.
    I send love to the President of France so that he can see a solution based on love of his nation rather than on revenge.
    I was initially devastated by the acts on Paris, and later in learning about Beirut. I allowed it to destroy my yesterday. But I know that we, as humans, cannot let this destroy us. Rather, we should be working together to make sure that a world without war is possible. And I agree, we can do that with love. We need to send it out to everyone and everything each and every day of our lives. We also need to move beyond just the sending of love to actually acting on that love. There are so many ways that people can help. If you feel a passion about this, embrace it. Show others just how strong love can be. I believe with all my heart that the human race is capable of change for the good. Find the good and be part of it.

      I agree, Kim. Thank you for helping all of us.

    Thank you so much Joe.

    I was so happy to read that a group of people CAN change things when they focus and send out positive energy. I truly believe in collective consciousness too and reading your article has only further confirmed to me that I am not crazy 🙂

    Thank you and have a lovely weekend

      Hi Sharon. You are one of the sane ones. Together we can make a difference. Thank you.

    As a Reiki Master, I’m sending to World Peace in general. But you’re right, Paris deserves some special attention.

    Personally, I can’t understand how people can believe that murdering a lot of innocent people is a way to achieve their ends. Surely they realised that the time will come when the world will say, “Enough is enough!” Or perhaps they think that martyrdom after murder is the way into Heaven?

    Either way, we must do something about it, and I think your way has more chance than the dithering and shilly-shallying of governments will ever achieve.

    Thank you for the extra reminder. I have a daughter who lives in the close suburbs of Paris; she and her family are safe and I am keeping them safe in my heart. I study Neville Goddard and I am meditating on how to give beauty for ashes, give joy for mourning, and give the spirit of praise for the spirit of heaviness. The more we dream in concert of a brighter, happier, healthier reality the sooner it will manifest.

    • November 15, 2015 at 12:53 pm

      Hi Anne. I’m glad your daughter is safe. Sending love.

    Thank you Joe – it is a wonderful text of you and the very best reaction, and I am fully in. And we have already done some: Aleaxandra produced a poem in French (Paris lumière – Paris light), one in English (Paris-love) and an imagination exercise in German ( ) alltogether : “Nous sommes Paris” here the youtube link: as your German may not be that good here the translation peace starts in your heart where the light always shines – imagine – unite your inner light with others to a flame of love – radiate into the world – We have posted it allover including your site :–) The text and video were working on is now “Nous sommes le monde – we are the world”, as our joint consciousness can stop terror allover the world – even the killers are victims who can be reprogrammed by the power of love – love Dietrich

    Thank you, Joe. I expected this invitation from you. My family and I pray, do clearing, and send Reik all the time. We are sure that your readers will respond and we will together show the way how to create new, peaceful and prosperous world. Love to all.

    Thank you Jo. I am French and live in the UK. My mum Called me in tears because my cousin works in the Bataclan concert hall. I told her thanks to my knowledge of the law of attraction and my understanding of the secret to stop right there. To turn off the TV, radio. To not focus her mind on fear and what the media would show us. I told her to concentrate on the good thing we currently have in France despite the attacks. The freedom, the fair laws, the diversity, the love. I was hoping you my hero Jo Vitale would show me even more that what I told her was correct. And you did with this beautiful blog entry.
    Thanks again

    Dear Joe:

    I am 73 years old and a veteran of the Vietnam was been married 52 years with grand children. I have studied metaphysics close to 45 years when I came back from Vietnam my mind was torn up and I wanted to commit suicide I got over that by a dream GOD sent me telling me I had been a Vietnamese twice and committed suicide. Letting me know that it would make not difference in my life. That changed my life ordinary religion went out the window for me. But enough of that just telling you a little about who I am. I will say I had depression a lot of my life and did not understand why when I got into Reincarnation I understood why as there are no accidents and much of our life is pre planned before birth.

    I do understand what you are saying about people mentally stopping disasters from happening. I myself in my ripe old age figured out something I would like to see people do to help generate our planet toward peace. I personally have worked on this myself and that is I have seen the earth from a distance in my mind as pictures I have seen of it. Then I imagined the earth with as encased in a large balloon. I then see the whole planet flooded with pink-Love surrounding the whole world. Why pink because I thought that sounded like the color of love. I would like to see thousands of people imagine this to make our planet more loving the entire earth over. Other positive emotions could also be seen flooding the earth. I try to use the colors of the Chakras to decide a color for the liquid.

    Just a thought Joe.

    Thank you Joe,
    I was finding some ways to get rid of my fear in past few days and night. I try to read your book “At Zero”. It seems no working until I saw this page on this web. I think that’s because fear occupied in my mind. Now I know why I can find this page. I will pray for Paris.

  19. November 20, 2015 at 11:46 am

    Much appreciation Joe for this point of view. We are all so much more powerful than we give ourselves credit for.. If we want peace we need to align with and focus on peace and not fan the flames of victum hood and violence. What we can control is our minds and hearts which eaquels our vibration. We are either resonating others up or being resonated down. We can manifest the reality we want and we can do it together… one positve thought at a time. Let’s not waiver for more than a moment.

    Love and Blessings,

    Dear joe. I,m pilar from spain.
    I would like to add something to your post: since we are a 100% responsable of everything that happens in our life, we are then responsable for that, too. So It means we can clean all our data about terrorism and so on. París, I,m sorry, please forgive me, I LOVE YOU, thank you. And what is more difficult: terrorists, I,m sorry, please forgive me, i LOVE YOU, thank you. I know ho oponopono for years and It,s all about our data

    I am only just reading this now, but it rings very true, its hard to ignore the terrible things that happen in the world today, but I have never allowed fear of terrorism to dictate how I live, after the terrible events of September the 11th I flew to New York for the following Christmas. Paris is one of my favourite places and we are booking to go this. I truly hope that our love of this wonderful Free world will overcome those that wish us harm. And as an individual I hope that through my life if I can make just one persons life better then life is and always will be wonderful. Happy New year Joe answer everyone who reads this.
